Just buy your books, DVDs, electronics, etc. elsewhere.
While you still have that option.
Amazon has a long history of abusing it's position and influence.
They've been screwing over small and POD publishers for a long time.
Not only does Amazon not contribute anything to your community (works hard to shirk local sales taxes), it doesn't contribute to Seattle where it's headquartered.
Do we really want a company with that track record to be our retail overlord?
Keep buying from them and you'll always be buying from them.
